Confucius Institute

The Confucius Institute at Arizona State University was founded in 2007 through a partnership between Arizona State University, Sichuan University in Chengdu, the Confucius Institute Headquarters and the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban). The Confucius Institute is committed to promoting scholarship about China, as well as high quality Chinese language and culture education within schools and the broader community. The Confucius Institute hosts academic conferences and regularly sponsors scholars and other experts to give presentations. It also sponsors and organizes professional development workshops for teachers, as well as cultural and outreach events for K-12 students and others in the community.
